Gaddafi Offers Truce

Trust him? Libya strongman Col. Muammar Gaddafi called for a ceasefire and said he is ready to negotiate with NATO during a live speech on state TV. His overture came as NATO bombs struck a government complex in Tripoli that included a state television building. "The door to peace is open," Gaddafi said in a rambling, hour-long pre-dawn speech on Saturday. "You are the aggressors. We will negotiate with you. Come, France, Italy, U.K., America, come, we will negotiate with you. Why are you attacking us?" Moussa Ibrahim, a government spokesman, accused NATO of trying to kill Gaddafi in their strike, saying it had been previously announced that he would be speaking live and that coalition forces thought he would be near the bombed television tower. The rebels have said they will only enter discussions after Gaddafi and his sons step down. Hours before the speech, the government was shelling the rebel-held city of Misrata, killing 15 people, including a 9-year-old boy. On Friday, NATO forces caught Gaddafi loyalists trying to mine the port of Misrata.
